Center caps since you're missing two. Mgw short throw if you're a stick. Inserts sound good k&n drop in filter find a used x pipe with high flow cars or off road for cheap. That's a mod you can feel.

reason i was replacing stock intake was because whoever was the previous owner was messed up the intake housing so it does not fully latch over the k&N filter since the housing is all bent up on the very top

Why no gears?

A short shifter is def a good starting point.

Gears should def be on that list. Was the first thing I did when I got my car. Was a dog when I bought it, but the gears def gave it some more pep in it's step.

If you need a new airbox, hit up some local junkyards or check the classifieds. Concidering how popular CAI's are, you're bound to find more than a few on the forums

Other thing I'd recommend is exhaust work. h/x pipe will help ya out a bit

Cosmetic stuff, i'm not sure. All the stuff i've done so far have been free. (painted deck lid, lower bumper, front grille, and the scoop section of the hood), relocated my spoiler (I have a 99, so I have a different one than you), than I also shortened my antenna to get rid of the rc car look.

Other than that, not sure much else you can do with your budget
